Montana’s Bighorn River Lodge has drawn avid fly fishing enthusiasts and sportsmen alike for decades. Known as one of Montana’s finest trout rivers in the country, the Bighorn River boasts an abundance of trout ranging in size from 14 to 18 inches, many exceeding 20 inches. Recent fish counts indicate an unsurpassed fish population of 5,000 trout per river mile. The Bighorn River is situated on the eastern edge of the Rock Mountains just north of the Wyoming – Montana state line. If you are looking for a Montana fly fishing vacation, this is your destination!

Lodging Details
Bighorn River Lodge has the distinct pleasure of being recognized twice by Travel & Leisure and Departures Magazine as one of the top fishing and outdoor lodges in the West. The lodge itself is situated on the banks of the river, designed and built with the most discriminating angler in mind. The lodge is outfitted with the finest and most comfortable furnishings, original pieces of wildlife art, a common area with a native stone fireplace, and expansive decks to enjoy the scenery during the summer months. On warmer days you can sit outside on the deck after a day of fishing and watch trout rising in the lodge’s private pond while you converse with friends. The interior of the lodge was designed for total privacy. The bedrooms are comfortably furnished, and each has its own private bathroom. There are no two rooms back to back, guaranteeing you a quiet and restful sleep.

Food and Beverages
“Dinner is served!” No sweeter words could be uttered at the end of a day on the river. The dining room seats up to twenty, located directly off of the lodge’s expansive kitchen. The dining room offers a variety of seating arrangements, spectacular works from renowned artists, and views of the river and surrounding wildlife. Breakfasts are cooked to order, lunches are packed in coolers for your day on the river, and dinners include gourmet menu items such as thick Montana steaks, chops, chicken and fish.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
For non-anglers, the short trip to the nearby Little Bighorn Battlefield is more than worth the effort. It leaves a powerful impression to walk along the chalky bluffs where Custer and his Seventh Cavalry engaged the Cheyenne and Sioux over one hundred years ago.

Internet / Communications
Internet access is available at the lodge. Cell coverage in the area can be spotty. Be sure to check with your service provider prior to your trip regarding specific coverage in the area.
